's put him if a little perspective politically. kerry served as president obama's mock debate partner during his re-election campaign. but he has pressured the administration at times urging the white house last year to speed up with the draul of u.s. troops from afghanistan. kerry was also influential in the administration's decision to intervene in libya. in case you forgot from his 2004 bid for the white house, he is one of the wealthiest members of the senate. he and wife teresa, heir to the heinz ketchup fortune are worth $180 million with a wide range of investments. in a letter to the state department legal adviser, kerry said he will divest any holdings that could be a conflict of interest within 90 days of being confirmed. he'll be introduced to day about the the current secretary hillary clinton. >>> today's appearance expected to take on a much different tone than the tough questioning she faced yesterday about the deadly attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going

? two things. they fit the demographics of the obama coalition. how did he win? with college-educated women-w younger voters-w non-white voters. so he's embracing, if you will, not only the politics but the policy priorities of his coalition. what else do they have in common? they put pressure like a sharp thumb on some key points in a republican coalition that this white house frankly thinks is aging, is increasingly white, and is fractured. >> and you're saying you think there's no doubt that that is part of this equation? >> without a doubt. if you heard speaker john boehner just the other day after the inaugural address saying the president is trying to annihilate the republican party. now, that's a strong word. but does this president see an opportunity? i'd be interested in the congresswoman's perspective. you can't find many democrats who think that president obama worries about the democratic party 10, 15, 20 years down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, then the democrats will have b

connell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back.

big ideas. that's where ali sat down with eric kantor to discuss washington's next big political battle budget. >> when you look at the options out there, president obama's budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys say need to be done. now you have a proposal that said you will balance the budget in years. i asked paul ryan this and i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> there new base lines in the budget. as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington were centered around the method of accounting whether it's static or dynamic. when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional tacks that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the base line. that is going to make the numbers look differently. right? we will have to make choices. no question about it. we have committed to putting a budget out there that will bring it to balance within years. >> the fact is nobody seems to want to own up to a budget that will hurt. >> the ryan budget, the last didn't balance in almost 30 years. the way we were trying to move s

enough for him, bill, to defeat the republicans politically or even based on policy which you would expect from any president. for president obama it is about pounding the republican party into oblivion. bill: let me talk about how republicans react to this in a moment, monica. emily, get on record, what do you think about the dustbin of history from speaker boehner? >> i think it is disappointing john boehner would go to the extreme talking points. he has not always been an extreme guy. he has been in the house for a long time. look to president obama, look actually at his record. when we moved into the sequester fight in early december, the first thing out of president obama's mouth he would look at any good idea regardless who it came from. he has consistent history of trying to work across the aisle. bill: does he now? bipartisan? >> the ideas that he a lick tated in the inauguration speech, those are american values. these are not traditionally democratic values. republicans used to be able to talk about these issues. it is really the republican party that has left the center,

-abiding gun owners who are parents. what it is is viewpoint and political discrimination and political persecution, no doubt about it. >> alisyn: michelle, speaking of schools, let's talk about president obama's plan for public schools in the country. it's called common core. he's setting standards. it's part of the race to the top program. what do we know about common core standards? >> well, a lot of parents and teachers and educators out there are learning more and more about it. it was really stealthily funded and seeded through the race to the top and federal stimulus programs, which were basically bribes to get states to sign on to these bogus standards before they were even written. so there was some core constitutional issues here about local control. for my perspective president reason why i'm devoting much more of my time and my syndicated column and loss in my blog to this issue over the next several weeks and months is that it is an undermining of academic excellence in this country. it is a trend of the left to undermine western civilization requirements, core math learnin
